A Day of Firsts

There is a subtle difference in being first and having an experience that is your first. The desire for being first can be overwhelming. It can hamper clarity in thought. It can leave you with tunnel vision about those things of true importance. Having a first experience though is a memory, a story, a context in which to build future experiences. I've been trying to wrap my mind around the power of this video that showcases the first kiss of a group of 20 people (whether they are strangers or not seems to be in debate). It is powerful. It draws me into watching it again and again for the subtle of each movement. There is something about first moments for everyone that is so powerful. Experiences are essential to the happiness of life. First experiences are the catalyst for this mindset. How are you fulfilling your need for firsts without confusing that for being first?
